This is insane: guy buys a @LedgerHQ hardware wallet off eBay, which arrives already setup with this fake recovery sheet in it. He proceeds to use it, and has all his money stolen. Buy your Ledger directly from https://t.co/QQm7GWftrX!https://t.co/2UvJfUl9h1 pic.twitter.com/aTI8im7B2e

Neonewstoday.com reports on the imminent Neo integration with the Ledger Nano S.
Over the past few weeks, the NEO development community has been working on integrating NEO with the Ledger Nano S, spearheaded by the efforts of Reddit user Coranos2.
Coranos2 began work on the project 18 days ago and has been documenting his progress on the NEO subreddit. Today, Coranos2 announced that he was able to successfully sign a transaction on the blockchain via Ledger, meaning the technical integration is now complete.
The next steps in the project include further work on the the BIP 39 and BIP 32 code for recovery, extensive testing, Ledger app UI design and approvals from NEO and Ledger. City of Zion are supporting Coranos2 on Neon wallet integration.
NEO support for the Ledger Nano S has been one of the most popular requests from the NEO community. Whilst we are still at least a few weeks away from project completion, today’s milestone marks a huge step forward.
Ledger Nano S
Cryptocurrency hardware wallet
Ledger Nano S is a Bitcoin, Ethereum and Altcoins hardware wallet, based on robust safety features for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments. It connects to any computer (USB) and embeds a secure OLED display to double-check and confirm each transaction with a single tap on its side buttons.
Following our initial tests it can hold up to 5 different cryptocurrencies. The limited memory is not allowing to install more than 5.
